When we arrived for our 7 pm reservation, we were promptly seated, two couples. Our server was prompt. This place has starters, dishes to share(kind of tapa-ish) and entree's. All the items from all catagories seemed original so choices were difficult. We asked our server(Jack) who made good, accurate suggestions as to portion sizes and qualities, like richness. We settled on one starter, three sharing dishes and two entree's, plus dessert. Everything was well prepared and served appropriately--no items we wish we hadn't ordered. We thought the wine list was limited on lower end bottles, though the one low end Chardonnay we had was excellent. And, we felt the entree's were a little on the high side. That said, we would definitely return to try other items on the menu.
I went out for my birthday, and everyone specified that (hostess, waiter) however they did not give a birthday dessert even though I saw a few of them pass us in the restaurant.
I cannot remember last time I had been to a restaurant with such great food, service and atmosphere. Our waiter, Mike, was very personable and efficient. The manager, John, stopped by to ask us how we were enjoying ourselves. Can't wait to go back. Actually was there last Saturday the 17th and planning on going back this Saturday, the 24th.
Nous avons eu une trés bonne expérience: nous avons réservé à la dernière minute sans trop savoir où aller manger dans le quartier, et nous avons été agréablement surpris par la qualité de la nourriture et du service. L'ambiance était bonne et nous recommandons le Monnie Burke's sans hésiter.
Love this restaurant
We loved this place - the food, service, ambience - were exceptional. We’ll be back again!
My group really did enjoy ourselves! Could be a little pricey for the neighborhood, but all was great
Words cannot express how wonderful our evening was. The service is outstanding. Everyone enjoyed the menu from start to finish.
Monnie Burke’s is simply exceptional. Every item on the menu is creative and delicious. Every member of the team, from the valet to the wait staff make you feel welcome and at home from the moment you arrive. My family and I love Monnie Burke’s every time we visit - from special occasions to a Sunday family dinner.
We celebrated our birthdays—the service and food were both outstanding. We had a great evening and I look forward to returning soon.
Flawless from beginning to end! Pretzels with smoked Gouda are a knockout and that Hangar Steak is to die for! Classy but not pretentious, immaculate decor and a seriously beautiful restaurant. Love love love Monnie Burke’s!!!!!
Fantastic food and cocktails! Great place!
Made a reservation and noted a food allergy. Kudos to the staff!! They brought a menu marked up with what they were able to modify, could not or were allergy friendly. 10 points for that. Shares and entrees were good and good sized. Some items on drink menu were unavailable. Ummm. I would have given my review 5 stars if my meal didn’t come wrong - twice! I asked for my meat medium well. It came rare. Not sure if the kitchen isn’t in agreement with patrons requests or just can’t do it. Next time it came medium rare. Took it home for leftovers and microwaved it to my satisfaction. 🙄. Staff was attentive and apologetic. Would give them another try.
Great Old fashioned and loved the chicken and waffles!
Fantastic food from a fun menu
Terrific evening! Great beers, some of the best cocktails anywhere and a delicious dinner menu. Warmest and most interesting service we’ve had in ages. We’ll be back!
Beautiful Restaurant. Great food. Perfect for a date or to hang out with friends and family.
Took the kids and grandkids and had a wondrrful time!
One of the best dining experiences I have had in quite a while! We will definitely be back!
I’m totally in love with this spot. The energy and vibe is perfect AND the food is amazing :)
Burger and fries were delicious. Wait staff seemed annoyed that we did not order alcohol or apps. After ordering a burger with no cheese or bun, the waitress commented that we had ordered a "burger that was no fun". One should not be shamed for dietary restrictions. Ever!
Too many good restaurants in the city to return to this place.
Music is not loud so you can enjoy conversation while dining. Portions are generous. We were offered a courtesy appetizer when there was an issue in the kitchen that caused one of our entree dishes to be delayed several minutes while the others had been served - that was a nice touch. However, I was refused service for alcohol because I didn’t have my ID, and was told I could leave and walk to my car a block away if I wanted to. I’m well into my 30s and found it a bit ludicrous that they had to manage the risk I could possibly be under the legal drinking age. It was perhaps the only blemish on what could have been a well-rounded meal. I found it insulting that I would have to subject myself to leaving the table, walking a block in the cold and back in order to prove my eligibility for a glass of wine. Otherwise, their team was attentive in keeping our water glasses full and checking in with us throughout our meal.
We had a lovely early Sunday dinner! Food was great as was the service! We ordered shared dishes for the table so we got a chance to try a number of items! Will be back!
Food was above average pub food. Atmosphere was nice and relaxed, lots of room and good noise/sound level
Service was exceptionally attentive
Monnie Burke’s is a gem. Great food
The service was outstanding. A bit too cold for outdoor seating but will be back next spring/ summer to enjoy the patio.
We had intended on eating at another 18th street hot spot. Sadly, they could not accommodate us. Fortunately, Monnie Burke’s could! Outstanding service, marvelous menu and all accessible without being overly fussy. Also, they support the local community and their efforts. Welcome to the neighborhood! Looking forward to many returns!!
What a great discovery! We enjoyed a very delicious dinner here and everything was great. We had the salmon tartare, Brussell sprouts, braised pork shank and scallops. This was probably too much food for the two of us but we still managed to eat most of it. The sprouts were fabulous, the pork shank was fall off the bone tender and the scallops were perfectly cooked.
The food was excellent, but a little disappointed in the French fries. I think they were frozen French Fries. Compared to the quality of the rest of the food we ate they seemed out of place and not to the level of the rest of the meal. The faro salad was terrific and the steak was perfectly cooked and very tender. The sauce with the steak, was amazing. We will definitely go back to try the rest of the menu. The staff was excellent. Friendly and attentive, but not intrusive.
Everything was wonderful. Kevin, the manager was great. Our waiter Mark was attentive. Food was fabulous. Highly recommend !
The wedge salad and mussels were amazing!!!! We chose this place because of the reviews and they were spot on!! We will eat there again next time we are in town
They couldn’t hold the reservation we had and they asked us to wait at the bar (about 45 mins). While waiting there were at least 6 open tables nearby. After finally being seated they took awhile to bring us drinks (actually did not charge us because of the wait). Food took even longer to come out and when it did the chicken was undercooked (also not charged). Quite a comical dining experience
The food here is exceptional. The pretzel breadsticks (appetizer) and caramel budino pudding (dessert) were the real stars of the show but everything was great. Also loved the cocktails. I got the smoky mango margarita. We went on a busy Saturday night and the service was slow but they acknowledged that and gave us a free dessert for our patience which was must appreciated.
Had a quick dinner before a show at Thalia Hall. Very happy we did. Warm hip ambiance. We shared a few plates: the cauliflower was delicious, mussels were in a savory broth, and gnocchi was really good. Our waitress was friendly, accomadating and knowledgeable. We will be back!
Great food...friendly smiling informative staff in a bustling, happy environment. Comfortable seating and food that has a simple twist to make traditional food seem gourmet. Specialty cocktails have that same special allure - a fun place that's comfortable but just a bit out of the usual comfort level of the casual dining experience, making it special. GGerry G
Always a favorite!
We went here for a friend's birthday and we were very impressed. Amazing food and exceptional service. We sat outside on the patio near the fire pit which was gorgeous. They even have blankets to use on the patio if it gets too cold. The space inside and out is beautiful, but it's the food and the service that we will come back for. Put this one on your list, you will not be disappointed.
Great roasted cauliflower appetizer. We loved the patio.
again even after a reservation we waited for more than 30 minutes. Is open table reservation not reliable enough?
Liked this restaurant and the vibe in the neighborhood quite a bit. Reminded me of Wicker Park before it became Lincoln Park -west. :(
Joshua was our waiter and he did a nice job explaining the menu and specials to us since it was our first time there. Food was really great and I would love to order the grilled octopus again! It was fabu and I would love to have some sort of light sauce atop it or in the bowl w/it. Flavors were lovely! Great vibe to the place and will return to hopefully sit on the patio. All good!
